    Hey guys, I need to removed an Alpina front spoiler from the front bumper of an E92. It's got black stuff on it holding it on, most likely TS. Whats the best way to break the bond without damaging the spoiler. The bumper itself has snapped on the left side, where the foglights goes, so the bumper doesn't matter.

    I've read heat up with a hairdryer and prise apart, use acetone/nail polish remover, use a hammer and chisel on the bumper itself!! Will the nail polish remover warp/melt the plastic if left too long tho?

    I guess a heat gun might do the job??? If you're not bothered about the bumper why not try a good strong stanley knife and several blades??

    I was thinking that, or something like a Dremel and chop through the bumper, but I'd still have to get all those bit's off the back of the spoiler.
